A week ago, Witten retired for the second time, according to the NFL.

He's trying something different after making another retirement announcement.

Former Dallas Cowboys and Las Vegas Raiders tight end Jason Witten has been hired as the next head football coach at Liberty Christian School in Argyle, Texas. The Argyle-based school noted Witten has a long history with them having sent multiple kids to the Liberty. Philip Rivers will be coaching in Alabama after announcing his retirement after one year with the Colts. He intends to sign a one-day contract with the Cowboys in March once his deal with the Raiders expires. "I am thrilled for our football team, coaches, student body, school community, and of course the Witten family".

He said that, with two identical shots, it's possible that the immune system doesn't get as big a boost from the second injection. The Russian government has said that a third vaccine named CoviVac is expected to be approved this month too.

Witten played 15 seasons with the Cowboys before hanging up his cleats for the first time in 2018. That's the way it should end, because Witten is a Cowboys legend. After the conclusion of the season he once again announced his retirement. He played 16 season in Dallas before spending 2020 with the Raiders.

The tight end logged 1,228 receptions and 13,046 receiving yards in his 17 years in the NFL. and he also famously had a 1-year stint broadcasting games on ESPN's "Monday Night Football". During which he made the Pro Bowl 11 times.

Before he chose Liberty Christian as his next adventure, Witten fielded multiple offers to coach at the National Football League and college levels. Jason, former Dallas Cowboy tight end and long-time Liberty parent will be joining the Liberty Christian coaching staff as Head Football Coach.
